Chevy Impala

New London, CT  2017

Car enthusiasts take a great deal of pride in restoring and maintaining these classic automobiles.  They always enjoy showing off the engines and in this case, the owner installed mirrors on the inner side of the hood to show off this particular engine.  Very cool.....

1959 Ford Skyliner


New London, CT  2107

A lot of engineering went into making this hard top convertible.  I don't believe the model lasted all that long, but it was pretty novel.  One drawback however was the lack of trunk space.

Studebaker

New London, CT  2017

One doesn't see too many Studebakers around, especially ones restored to original condition.

Cadillac

New London, CT  2017

I think this model is from the early '70's?   Not having seen one for a while, I was surprised to see just how big these cars were from that era.  Very little plastic on this beauty.

Chevy Bel Aire

New London, CT  2017

This is one of the autos on display at an event called Motorjam 2017 held at Ocean Beach Park in New London.  Car enthusiasts brought their cars to display  and to be entered into various contests.  I'll be posting some pictures this week of some of my favorite cars.  I think this one is a Chevy Bel Aire, perhaps from the mid to late '50's.

Shoreline East

New London, CT  2017

The Shoreline East is a commuter train that runs between New London and New Haven.  With all the weeds seen, you'd think this is an abandoned track, but it is just one end of the line.

Thames Barbershop

New London, CT  2017

I'm not sure if this barbershop was just closed at this time, or closed for good.
